Blue Chippers, a new content series focusing on students who have caught our attention.
As we continue Hypepotamus Week, it’s time to turn the lens on Emily Detrick, a recent graduate from Savannah College of Art and Design . She wowed us with her portfolio (check it out here) and has been the creative energy behind a number of photography-centered projects we’ve completed this summer. Be sure to check out the multi-sensory experience she produced about the Summer Startup Academy using a whole library of photos shot by her and other photographers.
